International Standards for Improving Cybersecurity

International Standards for improving Cybersecurity

Supporting Cybersecurity Risk Reduction

Tackling cybersecurity is a daunting challenge. You put mechanisms in place to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of proprietary information and technology, including sensitive details about your customers, and you establish and implement processes and procedures to protect your information systems. However, it is hard to be certain that these steps will effectively reduce your risk should a serious incident occur and that you have correctly met all government-required cybersecurity controls.

Successfully implementing cybersecurity controls and achieving certification provides confidence to current and prospective customers that your organization is not only serious about protecting sensitive information but has proven it.

Our team of experts provides comprehensive and accredited certification services. From the initial quote to the certification issuance, we work closely with your organization to help ensure an accurate and timely audit.

ABS QE, a Premier Provider of Cybersecurity QMS Certifications

Our team of international auditors have industry-wide experience and are matched with clients to ensure a deep understanding of their unique challenges in establishing and maintaining a cybersecurity program. Our auditors keep an open line of communication throughout the entire audit, formally handling results and certification decisions internally for a seamless and integrity-driven process.

If you need certification to multiple standards, our auditors can save you time by performing integrated audits to reduce operational disruptions.

Understanding the Cybersecurity Standards

When you are audited to any cybersecurity standard by a certification body, you are telling your customers you have a system in place to help safeguard data and mitigate the repercussions of a security breach.

Technology has changed the way you store and retrieve data. Certification provides an unbiased audit of your current cybersecurity risk posture, identifying your strengths and weaknesses so you can operate with confidence.

ISO 20000 – IT Service Management System

The ISO 20000 standard helps IT departments develop, implement and improve processes for creating, supporting, managing and delivering IT services. Maintaining compliance helps to ensure IT Service Management (ITSM) processes are better aligned with business needs and international best practices and are continually monitored and improved.

Benefits of ISO 20000 Certification

ISO 22301 – Business Continuity Management System

ISO 22301 provides generic guidelines for implementing, maintaining and improving a management system to minimize the likelihood of a cyber attack and recover rapidly from operational disruptions.

ISO 27001 – Information Security Management System

ISO 27001 explains the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an information security management system that encompasses people, policies and technology. The objective is to help your company establish a systematic way of protecting itself from cyber attacks that threaten the security of sensitive information.

ISO 27701 – Security Techniques for Privacy Information Management System (PIMS)

ISO 27701, a data privacy extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002, specifies requirements and provides guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS). It provides a framework for putting a system in place to support compliance with data privacy requirements, specifies PIMS-related requirements and provides guidance for PII controllers and PII processors.

Integrated Management Systems

Some companies seek multiple cybersecurity certifications. Seamless integration is invaluable when your QMS manages activities for more than one standard. If you want to be sure activities are being managed effectively and efficiently, you might want to consider integration support. Our experts can help you ensure your QMS is meeting all the appropriate criteria for whichever standards you have chosen to be certified to.

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification 2.0 (CMMC 2.0)

Developed by the DoD, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a program to ensure that all Defense Industrial Base (DIB) contractors meet cybersecurity requirements for handling controlled unclassified information (CUI) and federal contract information (FCI). While rule-making is being finalized, it is important now more than ever to become an Early Adopter by considering participation in the Joint Surveillance Voluntary Assessment Program (JSVAP) in preparation for CMMC's final version.
